20 Indian army personnel killed in clashes at the Line of Actual Control in Ladakh's Galwan Valley.

In the first such escalation in violence between China and India at the border in 45 years, 20 Indian army personnel have died.

On June 15, violent clashes took place between the Indian Army and Chinese troops in the Galwan Valley in Ladakh. The Indian army reported that 20 army personnel, including a colonel, died in the violent clashes. This news came after reports that emerged about both countries preparing for de-escalation. Gen. Naravane stated on June 13 that troops of India and China were disengaging in a phased manner from the stand-off areas along the border following the series of ground talks and even claimed that a lot of disengagement had happened in the Galwan river area.

The last incident of firing and fatalities occurred on the border was on October 20, 1975, when a patrol team of the Assam Rifles was ambushed by Chinese troops at Tulung La in Arunachal Pradesh, resulting in the death of four personnel.
